Wapitis had only just been delivered to the RAAF when A5-4 made an appearance at an air pageant at Essendon. It flew with the air force for 10 years until crashing at Mount Buninyong, Victoria on December 12, 1939. The RAAF received 44 Wapitis but one was damaged in a wharf accident and never entered service. Photo from: National Library of Australia

Withdrawn from use in 1966 after severe corrosion found in the airframe. It was caused by foam sprayed on the aircraft by an overzealous firefighter when its undercarriage collapsed on landing at Athens. It was not the only trouble during the delivery flight from the UK, where it had been G-APSJ. The late arrival of the aircraft in Australia cost the buyer a contract and led to legal action against the seller.
